Yeah Tom I'm using Mozilla, no Adblock, and sometime I too get the never load glitch.

I'm using a wired ethernet connection that my University provides (Pretty reliable and fast) and I still have to buffer mid stream a bit. Will there eventually be a quality option or do we have to view at maximum? (I only ask because I could see that as an issue for a lot of people)

Nice quality, the player seems more solid than Youtube's even. Although I can imagine this costing a lot more bandwidth, but traffic will probably increase a lot with all the new animators coming in.

Wow thats awesome :D
No technical need for paralell youtube uploads anymore for the authors :)

Starbarians is 88 megs which should be manageable for anyone with broadband. Slow computers running 1080p video is another issue though. I liked to think we were late enough to arrive with video that we wouldn't need to cater to all the smaller formats for slower computers / connections... But then I know mobile people especially will likely want smaller versions... BARF.

Still pretty quality player. Everything worked great on my crappy netbook, and most sites that play in 1080p aren't capable of anything like that. Good job guys.

So does that mean that we get to apply the standard "steel toecap to the balls" punishment for content thieves here?

They were both uploaded as MP4 files and are playing in our new video player! Starbarians originally consisted of three SWFs, too big to compile as one file. HappyHarry used Swivel, software developed by Mike to perform the best-ever SWF to video conversions. It's full framerate, 1080p (try fullscreen mode) and it even merged his individual SWF files on the fly. Swivel is still in the testing phase but we'll be releasing it to the public when it's all polished up!

This is big - so much for people having the redirect to YouTube for their awesome animations to be seen in all their glory! Great work and a single thing that makes the redesign all worthwhile. The fact that there is more than one of these things that makes me feel like this is only good news for the community.

Wow, this is awsome! Newgrounds is getting better and better.
Takes a long time to load movies though :(


Check out my flash animations, and games. I've also made some bad music, and art ;)

It only took me around 2-3 minutes to load 88 MB Starbarians.

Y'all have slow internet.

However, I do agree that you should probably get some kind of system that compresses the video after you upload it, YouTube style. But make sure it doesn't have the same problem the YouTube compressor has with red (it makes bright red look super ugly)

I hear audio only, I've tried chrome, opera, and explorer. I have all the latest versions.

I'm also using windows 7 OS

anyone know why this is happening?

I'm using Win 7 as well and chrome. Playback goes smooth until I cut the internet down below 1.2 mb/s or so. Maybe you have slow internet and need to wait for the buffer to fill up.

Hey Starbarians was all glitchy and flickery while BarfQuestion's video was fine.

I'm 60 seconds of loading later and there is ~5 seconds buffered. Teething problems? completely unwatchable...
Same here, although I do have a lousy internet connection atm, I think it's because it's buffering at full 1080p, I think you need to implement an option to turn down the quality Tom :(

Yeah, I have a good internet connection and it continues to buffer its self every couple of seconds. I hope this video player doesnt replace all flash animation on NG. Its a cool feature but at what cost?

I had no problem viewing Valentine's Day 2012. When I was trying to play Starbarians however, the video was unfortunately unwatchable. The audio runs fine, but the animation doesn't. All I get to see are what seems to be one frame every two seconds alternating all the while the screen gets flashed by green the entire time. This also happened to the Robocop animation MindChamber recently uploaded. I'm using Chrome on Windows 7. I don't understand what's wrong though as Valentine's Day 2012 worked fine.

Nonetheless though, it seems to work magnificently for everyone else though so that's good news. Mike has done a damn good job here. Newgrounds just seems to be getting better and better.

Mp4 support to upload converted large swf files? Awesome.

Starbarians Ep. 1 looked really awesome to me at least. Also, I'm really excited about this Swivel software, Mike is the man!

Bless Mike! Flash it's self is terrible at exporting Video! Is Swivel suppose to be a standalone tool or a Newgrounds utility for uploading.

I'm going to be a an ass-kisser for a second and just say good job guys.

Really though. There's so much revolutionary shit going on here, the future of Newgrounds is looking bright, in my opinion.

When you are in fullscreen (or zoomed in on your browser) the invisible pause button that is meant to cover the whole screen only covers a portion of it, and I find myself having to click on the trackbar for a movie to start playing.

Response to Video is a GO! 2012-04-16 15:28:54


Holy bajeesus Starbarians is 88 mb and the Valentine's Day file is 147 mb. No wonder you got that pushed out. It does work well, though, which is great.


If you're reading this, EJR, you suck.

Thoroughly impressed by the new video player! .mp4 support is definitely something Newgrounds can make use of. Maybe we can be like a less shitty YouTube.

No. Why we'll need to turn swfs into mp4? SWFs are snaller than mp4s. Also, some flash movies have Easter Eggs. we like to find.

Some flash movies might lose their charms by doing this.

I'm pretty sure not all flash movies will use the Mp4.

Sounds ok to me as long as we can choose between converting movies into mp4 or stayed in swf format.

You guys, Swivel will be available to everybody just to convert swf to mp4. Video on Newgrounds however will be very rare and only exclusive animators can use it.

But this is a flash portal, not a video portal. We're already getting youtube comments in the review section and this will just make it worse.

I'm not a great animator anyway and I don't think I'd be an exclusive animator. I make movies for fun only.

But what would happen if I win a reward with my movie. It would make me as an exclusive animator and turn my movie into mp4. That would make me angry about it.
